Last year I did a ceramics class with Rachel Quinn. It’s the first time I’ve ever tried my hand with clay – well unless you count the time in primary school when I got thrown out of the pottery class for talking! Anyway I didn’t really have a clue what I was doing but Rachel is a great teacher and very talented.
I made three different pieces. I picked two of them up yesterday. At the top you will see a bowl I made for Rocket-dog. I’m delighted with how this turned out and I love the glaze on it.
Next is my very wonky vase! It’s certainly unique! Now all I need are a few flowers to put it in (hint hint to anyone who may be reading 😉 )
If you don’t feel like making anything yourself Rachel has her own wonderful items for sale. If you do feel like learning something new, or maybe you would like to improve, Rachel has evening classes starting the second week of Jan on a Thursday night. It’s a 2 hour class for 8 weeks, great fun, very relaxing and always a nice bunch of people. It’s the perfect way to spend those dark evenings. You can find Rachel here.
I wonder what my next challenge will be?
